Unite, and fight, to make a better life!

God I love that song by Skillet:

Do Governments want protest? Do Governments want a Revolution? They are probably trying to veer off in another direction, but are being constantly bombarded with corrupted politicians that are trying to make things worse.

Companies who corrupt is an "Abuse of Power [Act]" (Suggestion); people who accept the attitude of a company in return for money is an "Abuse of Wealth [Act]" (Suggestion); and the fact that The People have little or no influence on political advancement in any way, shape or form is an "Unfair Advantage [Act]" (Suggestion).

Those "Acts" suggest that these things need to be minimised as it is severely affecting the way The People and the Government communicate with each other. Having good communication with your Government enables a healthy community, and in all senses of the phrase, a healthy community invites a healthy economy. Any lack of communication therein causes indecisive movement toward opinionated culture, which is often what the law is made up of: opinions. Law should be based on the facts of a problem, and be able to solve the problem with only members of the subject community.

My idea of a "Community of Contributions" would allow for this. To get all members of all subject fields the ability to propose legislation to solve problems surrounding that subject field, all proposals being brought up by a Minister for the Department of that subject field once the proposal gains public attention, and then submitting the proposal to Parliament.

I also feel that Planning plays a vital part in the role of creating legislation, and at least the UK has gone as far as proposing a reform by the NI Assembly which will affect local governments by 2015.

I honestly believe that bringing the Government and The People closer in terms of communication will bring a much healthier society and economic climate, people will be happier as they play an important role in advancing politics in the right direction, esp. in proposing laws of their respective subject fields. It is absolutely vital for only those within the subject field to have a say in such things, and not have politicians themselves be the only ones to get the say - they only know Politics, they're basically useless.

I never really looked at Politics as a career, but from what I have learned about how politics work, I can see now that it is merely an opinionated role, and not based on the actual facts of the problems themselves. Politicians should not be trusted in that regard, they know how to influence people with their policies and have some general knowledge in Law, but Politics is way too broad of a subject to allow them to a run a country.

A country is an idea, just like business starts up from ideas. Therefore, a country is a business, and must be treated like a business. The people you govern are basically consumers, they retrieve public services from government with payment of taxes and national insurance. The fact to the matter is, government's are not being treated like a business, they are being treated like a legal entity when they are not - Governments offer services and policies to the people, they do not offer abuse of the law, and this is a common misconception in modern day society, particularly American Government.

What do you think should happen? Should Governments be left intact or should they be reconstructed to adopt a more business-oriented society? There are of course the advantages and disadvantages for both, personally I would rather live in a community that has an active influence on politics and be full of business and livelihood.

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
